An interview Chuck did with Kirkus Reviews for the new BURNT TONGUES anthology (now out).  Here’s a sample:
Why is the medium of the short story so important?
"On a teaching level, it establishes some boundaries and it kind of forces the student to really focus on making something happen within a limited number of pages. Because otherwise, the beginning writer could just keep writing and writing and making the same mistakes for hundreds of pages. So at least the short story kind of keeps them focused. And on another level, it’s a great way to teach because when you read beautiful, incredible short stories by writers you admire you can kind of analyze them and unpack them and see how they work. You can dissect them, take them apart, much more easily than you could a novel."
